Please remember to read the Images and Categorization sections of the Manual of Style before uploading an image. All images must:
- Follow existing naming conventions (see how images in the same category are named).
- Be categorized in an existing image category (staff administers new categories).
- Follow existing maximum file widths (see table).
- Have the appropriate file type extension .jpg/.jpeg for all images except those that need transparency.
Image Maximums May Have Changed:
|Image Type||Proper Naming||Proper Sizing||Proper Format||Special Information|
|ALL IMAGES||Please follow the naming convention used in the existing category suitable for the image you are about to upload. In general, users should only upload images listed in Special:WantedFiles (please do not upload dragon icons, Kimberly creates those) using the exact name specified. Images should generally be uploaded at the largest size for which they are to be used in pages (not larger), and most files should not exceed 800px in width or height (unless they look poor at smaller sizes). This prevents extra copies from being made by MediaWiki, as a file page can only display files at a maximum of 800px by 800px, MediaWiki is forced to create a copy/thumbnail to display it at that size on those pages, and unnecessary copies should be avoided (eats server space unnecessarily).|
